Posted on 04/24/2011 6:31:35 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
A transgender woman beaten at a Baltimore County McDonald's spoke out on Saturday, saying that the attack was "definitely a hate crime" and that she's been afraid to go out in public ever since.
"They said, 'That's a dude, that's a dude and she's in the female bathroom,' " said Chrissy Lee Polis, 22, who said she stopped at the Rosedale restaurant to use the restroom. "They spit in my face."
A worker at the restaurant taped Monday's attack and created a graphic video that went viral last week. After the video garnered hundreds of thousands of views on websites, McDonald's issued a statement condemning the incident, and on Saturday the worker who taped the incident was fired.
The video shows two females one of them a 14-year-old girl repeatedly kicking and punching Polis in the head as an employee and a patron try to intervene. Others can be heard laughing, and men are seen standing idly by.
....Her twin brother, Matty Polis, who also lives in Baltimore, said it's been painful to watch her have to endure these sorts of attacks.
"My sister has gotten this her entire life," Matty Polis said. "Being the way she is, she's always had a hard time."
Polis, who was raised by her grandmother in Dundalk and Essex, graduated from Chesapeake High and hasn't had a job or stable place to stay for the past two years, according to her mother, Angela Thomas.
Polis, who is white, believes race may have also been a factor in her attack both the assailants were black, according to the police report.
Equality Maryland has called on state Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler to step in and investigate the case as a hate crime.

The American community needs to focus like a laser on how this crime is handled and how the msm and the government handles all the parties involved.
I too have stopped at McDonalds to use the restroom (sometimes I buy a drink too, sometimes not). To date I ("old," white, dudette) have not been assaulted.
Are white, religious U.S. citizens protected under the law? U.S. Attorney Eric Holder has given this some though and he shared his views with the Senate Judiciary Committee on June 25, 2011:
[excerpt] RUSH: I want you to hear this. June 25th, a week ago, Senate Judiciary Committee, Eric Holder testifying, and this is the question. "Jeff Sessions presents a hypothetical where a minister gives a sermon, quotes the Bible about homosexuality and is thereafter attacked..." You know what the media didn't pick up yet? Whether liberalism is chosen or whether you're born with it. Once they get through the fog of the Jackson death, Media Matters will get that to 'em. I'm sure they have it. It's just a matter of it hasn't penetrated the fog there at the editors' desks. Anyway, a question, hypothetical. "[A] minister gives a sermon, quotes the Bible about homosexuality, is thereafter attacked by a gay activist because of what the minister said about his religious beliefs and what Scripture says about homosexuality." Is the minister protected, is what Sessions said. Here's a portion of the answer, the testimony from Eric Holder.
HOLDER: Well, the statute would not -- would not necessarily cover that. We're talking about crimes that have a historic basis. Groups who have been targeted for violence as a result of the color of their skin, their sexual orientation, that is what this statute tends -- is designed to cover. We don't have the indication that the attack was motivated by a person's desire to strike at somebody who was in one of these protected groups. That would not be covered by the statute.

At night I walk this stinkin street past the crazies on my block
And I see the same old faces and I hear that same old talk
And Im searching for the latest thing, a break in this routine
Im talkin some new kicks, ones like you aint never seen
This is home, this is Mean Street
(This is) Yes-ah home, the only one I know
An we dont worry bout tomorrow cause were sick of these four walls
Now what you think is nothin might be somethin after all
Now you know this aint no through street, the end is dead ahead
The poor folks play for keeps down here, theyre the living dead
Come on down, (Huh! Ow!) down (This is) to Mean Street
Theyre dancin now, look! Out on Mean Street
I’ve refrained from comment on this.
It’s hard to know who to root for on this one.
The savage black chicks acted like mindless animals, clearly.
But tranny hookers aren’t anyone I’d cheer for either.

Ever heard of something called equal protection of the laws? The equal protection clause of the Constitution of the United States?
The laws must be enforced evenhandedly, not just for those who are protected on a “historical” basis. You pulled that phrase out of hat.
Clash of the PC titans. Ghetto culture vs. LGBT lunacy. No excuse for the animals who attacked the victim, but he should have never been in there. In a saner culture he would have been discouraged from the course that his life has taken. Once we abandon sanity and objective Judeo-Christian morality we end up with chaos. And I remember a time when young ladies(term loosely used) did not engage in vicious attacks. But that is old-fashion and sexist of me.
This nation needs to turn back to God but quick. We are headed for collapse.
Real, real intelligent to beat a tranny hooker until you draw blood. If you have a death wish, I suppose.
What about the other people who stood around and did little or nothing?
Anyone who did this is complicit in this horrible crime and should be prosecuted.
The so called victim was a dude in the ladies room and the Sistas took care of it. Not a hate crime IMO.
this is black vs gay community. Coulter had a ranking system for them in how the left treat each group
So she is a he? I wonder who paid for the sex change since he/she has never worked. Anyway the two savages should have been shot.
What’s a “dudette”?
That's because you're taking two independent circumstances and trying to synthesize them into one. First, the transgender freak brought the action upon himself. Second, his actions did not justify the response, and the two assailants ought to be charged with assault.
Yes. And we all need to be EQUALLY protected under the law.
A Republic stands only if it has people of character who demand it.
Duh, not what happened, the black hookers called her a she in the police report statement.
Ghetto blacks, as a group, have not taken to the cultural Marxist brainwashing that gay is good. Not sure why. Maybe because they don’t, as a rule, pay much attention in school and they don’t watch mainstream entertainment.
I agree with you. At first I heard that this was a situation of black girls beating up a white girl.
Now I find that they thought they were beating up a pervert.
Had this been a creepy man or a sexual predator (and by appearances, these girls thought that’s what they were dealing with) there wouldn’t be any argument that they were doing the right thing.
Why does the article refer to the victim as “she”? One’s sex is evident in every cell in the body.
